Posted to Summit County Emergency Blog by Jason Lederer

Possible 30 Minute Trail Closure Due to Fire Mitigation Work
Visitors to the Miner’s Creek area near Frisco, which include the popular Bill’s Ranch, Peaks, and Masontown trails, should be aware that this summer they may encounter Forest Service staff working to create defensible space and fuel breaks to protect against potential wildfires. Temporary trail closures of up to 30 minutes should be expected when Forest Service staff are taking down trees close to the Bill’s Ranch, Peaks, and Masontown trails.

Logging Traffic in Peak 7 Neighborhood
 Visitors may also encounter logging traffic on Barton Road and Blue Ridge Road in Breckenridge as work begins on fuel breaks west of Airport Road on 43 acres of National Forest Syst
em and Summit County lands. Crews are also working fuel breaks on 4.5 acres of National Forest System land near the Peak 7 neighborhood in Breckenridge on the north side of Ski Hill Road, directly west of Protector Circle.

Summit County Stronger Futures Fund
The projects, funded in part by Summit County Strong Future funds, are part of the Good Neighbor Authority program between the Colorado State Forest Service and U.S. Forest Service, which facilitates important fuels and forest projects across jurisdictional boundaries. Passed by Summit County voters in November 2018, the Strong Future Fund provides about $1 million per year for wildfire mitigation programs and strategies, including fuel breaks around neighborhoods, hazardous fuels reduction, wildfire prevention patrols, public education on fire restrictions, cistern installation, road upgrades for firefighting equipment access, and other strategies.

Fuels Reduction Work Schedule
Work on all of these projects is expected throughout the summer and may occur Monday through Friday, from 7:00am to 7:00pm.
